Latch C / Smart access system

Discipline: Product

Latch C is designed for the culture of modern living. The silent and intuitive design allows the user to build trust in a new technology system that is replacing a traditional key. A passcode combined with a smartphone app allows entry for friends or delivery people when you are not at home. A camera takes images for transparency and security. Trust, longevity, and mindfulness are key design values. The simple and restrained design is reduced to its most essential form to create an experience with universal appeal by merging the traditional physical lock with a new digital world, into one seamless experience that is understood and effortless.
